this is kinda broad...say you've inherited 5 ( R.H.
linux ) machines. all of which have been on for a
year, not firewalled and not backed up.
management has a "ain't broke don't fix" mentality. i
guess, what would you do? how would you be sure
there are no trojans, bots etc...chkrootkit and so on,
i suppose, but how reliable will the results be? how
can i be sure there isn't a key-logger in the kernel.
you can't simply firewall them off and leave them for
dead. legal action can be taken against the company
in the event of a break-in and subsequent attacks on
and on and on.
